Hi,

lst = {4, 5, 6};

Table[lst[[Mod[i, Length[lst]] + 1]], {i, -6, 6}]

| Dear Group,
| I have a simple issue:
| If  I have a list such as :
| a = {4, 5, 6};
| How can I do this in an elegant way:
| a[] equivalent to a[[-1]]
| a[[-1]] equivalent to a[[-2]]
| and so forth.
|
| I thought of a[[If[i <=0, i - 1, i]]] would
solve the problem
| but I want a more elegant way of doing this.
|
| Any help is very welcome,
| Thanks,
| Alex
